This PSSC film utilizes a fascinating set consisting of a rotating table and furniture occupying surprisingly unpredictable spots within the viewing area. The fine cinematography by Abraham Morochnik, and funny narration by University of Toronto professors Donald Ivey and Patterson Hume is a wonderful example of the fun a creative team of filmmakers can have with a subject that other, less imaginative types might find pedestrian.

This short stock footage clip was produced using a public domain clip created by Eva Vikstrom called "Flying Object". The clip shows the vapor trail of a plane flying over. I timelapsed the flying object and added a public domain nuke blast from the Prelinger Archive. This is a modified special effects clip. While I will maintain a basic copyright over the edited clip, I am releasing it for use by the general public. You don't really need to attribute it to me to use it. Just have fun...

Georges Melies, 1903. (Also refereed to as the infernal Boiling Pot) Here is a description from Wikipedia. "The film shows a green-skinned demon who places a woman and then two courtiers into a burning cauldron. He performs an incantation and three spirits suddenly appear from the flames, before dancing above his head. Frolicking in hellish joy, the demon watches as the three spirits burn up and fall to earth.".

This is the last scene in Edwin S. Porter's "The Great Train Robbery," when the leader of the outlaws, played by Justus D. Barnes, empties his pistol at the audience. It cause quote a fright in theaters because no one had seen anything like it before.
